For many years men have awaited, impatiently
to be sure, evidence that Maitreya does in truth exist, and carries
out His work among us. Why this doubt should for so long persist is,
perhaps, difficult to understand, given the vast transformations of
our world which have clearly taken place, each one foretold by Maitreya,
and made available to the public and world media. What prevents the
acceptance – even as a hypothesis – that such a welcome
event has indeed transpired?
Why should this be so? What inhibits the public announcement
of this welcome news? In the main the problem is fear: fear of ridicule,
fear of disbelief; fear of loss, of their status or jobs; fear that
they are somehow beguiled, that they did not see what they saw or hear
what they heard. It is easier to set their experiences aside and to
leave it to Maitreya Himself – if He does indeed exist – to
come forward and show the world His factual Presence.
